JHK’s lost classic now reprinted as an e-book
Kindle edition only



Behold the official reception hall of the Kansas Expo Center in Topeka, the state fairground. Heritage Hall, one of the oldest buildings in Kansas, has been retrofitted as a party shack enclosed between the convention center, Capital Plaza hotel, and a great American desert of parking lots. Curiously, they stuck a plastic portico on the sandstone facade. The columns might even be Legos. Thanks to Albert Bates of Summertown Tennessee for the nomination and the photo.

Kunstler skewers everything from kitsch to greed, prejudice, bloodshed, and brainwashing in this wily, funny, rip-roaring, and profoundly provocative page- turner, leaving no doubt that the prescriptive yet devilishly satiric A World Made by Hand series will continue.” — Booklist

    They might as well have attached a massive dangling cock, and a set of sweaty balls resting on the walkway. At least it would have been entertaining. The mind of the hillbilly aristocrat is a never-ending gift…

    It’s nice that they didn’t simply knock down another historic building, and are attempting to find a useful life for it, but yeah– that portico just looks odd.
